Abstract

There is little or no nature left, that have not been influenced by human activities. Furthermore, there is no human left who haven\'t had any contact with western (or eastern) civilisation and along with it, its (agricultural) technology. Globalisation is at hand. Till now there hasn\'t been one \'advanced\' civilisation, which endured without exhausting it\'s surrounding natural (ecological and genetic) resources. With globalisation in progress, we have one chance left to create a society that can sustain it\'s natural resources. I hope this research will contribute to this cause.
